This painting is of a fashion model which is basically the inspiration of many girls and women. The fashion industry has a strong preference for skinny models to sell their products. Edwin wants to portrait all kind of women, therefore also this model. Just to provoke your inner dialogue, is this what you really want?
What does the girl in this painting want to tell you? In the first painting, which continues on the story of Beauty Adoration, she invites you to embrace your own core. The expression and pose of her symbolises the surrender and acceptance, because real beauty shines and irradiates from inside to outside. This extraordinary true beauty is in everybody, no matter of age or looks. The blue color of the voile emphasises the acceptance, confidence in yourself and the strength and trust in your own core, as beautiful as you are.
In this artwork, Edwin used self-made paint made from traditional, genuine pigments to paint her skin. Also the panel is completely hand-prepared: the Belgian linen is glued on the multilayered wood and grounded with traditional ground. The painting has currently an ornate frame, however, this soft Female Landscape also fits nice in a modern frame.
